BOSU Balance Trainer is known industry-wide as a versatile fitness device that delivers killer cardio workouts, builds strength, improves balance and flexibility, and fine-tunes sport skills. It consists of an inflated rubber dome attached to a rigid platform. The BOSU name is an acronym for Both Sides Utilized which refers to its versatility as a training device. Using the BOSU Balance Trainer dome side up provides an ever-changing, unstable, dynamic surface while the device itself remains stable. This element of instability is what creates the added challenge during exercises and is what makes BOSU so effective, and fun, as a fitness device. Flip the BOSU over and use dome side down to discover even more exercises.
The BOSU Balance Trainer targets the core muscles of your body helping you to not only gain strength, trim and tone, but to strengthen the entire body and improve balance. The BOSU Balance Trainer delivers an ever-changing dynamic surface that you can stand on, jump on, kneel on, and lay on, to perform exercises to train and challenge every part of your body. The BOSU Balance Trainer helps to increase body strength and improve balance, coordination and body awareness which means overall improved fitness and fewer injuries. Because the BOSU Balance Trainer is impossible to master, it means endless exercise options as strength and ability increase. And, because of its small size and weight it makes a great addition to any home gym and fits easily into any fitness program.
It’s easy to get started with the BOSU by simply following the exercises in the owner’s manual. Each of the exercises uses balance and stabilization techniques to challenge the cardiovascular system, muscle strength, endurance and flexibility. The manual includes proper modifications for both beginners and more advanced users so that workouts are appropriate for any fitness level. Or, follow along to one of the workouts in the included DVD or the Bonus DVD that features the Xplode Cross-Training Series.
When storing multiple Bosu balls, it is very important to stack them dome to dome and base to base. Stacking base to dome has a slight chance of generating a gel-like substance from the reaction of the dome to the base and this can invalidate the BOSU warranty.
